Im liking how they are making Joe look like a monster

I was always told Joe was a fat guy who could take bumps. He lost to Rollins who lost every week either clean or due to outside interference.

Didn't Joe beat the big dog aka Superman Reigns. Really Joe should win if he's some sort of destroyer

Hes also a Samoan that isnt part of the Rocks little group

He beat him before, last weeks RAW Regins said "Im un beaten in one on one matches"
Bochamania DO YOUR THING!!

My problem is other than Strowman the Heels always lose. Joes a monster and he shouldn't be losing to Rollins, who loses every match I see him wrestle even with 4 men and Gonzo/China mark 2 (Steph is built like the proverbial brick house.) backing him up

I know it's PG and the soccer mums and little kids want the good guys to win, but I can predict every match. Stopped watching just read the results not even bothered with the rumble or wrestlemania

Lucha Underground is good they need somebody like Pentagon who breaks the women's arm or Dario's brother who looks like Rick from Splatterhouse. Monster he is.

Watch NJPW or Lucha Underground

They are not PG and are fun

They have definitely done well with Joe so far. At the start of the Feud it looked like Brock would easily win , but it at least looks more open now thanks to Brock actually selling that segment. Don't know much of Joe before his NXT days, but he plays the monster heel perfectly and is one of those people who just looks naturally intimidating.

I'm assuming the MITB was their way of admitting they got the ending wrong. I'm fine with Carmella having it because it suits her character, but definitely better that she won it without any help

I think what's happened is that now everyone knows the show is scripted and are consciously aware of this to a large degree while they're watching, when the heel ruins a "moment", the heat goes on the writers/promotion instead of the heel.

I dont even know what to think apart from "Well that was pointless"

Getting really sick of these messed up pointless c**p the WWE does
Also sick of THE SAME FRIGGEN MATCHES EVERY WEEK!! Ok they change them slightly, but they are more or less the same thing (Oh look the Hardys are going against Shamus and Cesario AGAIN! Miz vs Ambrose? Hasnt that been going on for the past year?)

Im about to give up on just trying to pay attention to it and go into "Skip bits" mode
The same what I do with Impact wrestling (I cant even watch that live its far to irritating)

The G1 Climax cup is coming up and I really dont want to waste my time watching the c**p WWE does, its what 8 hours a week and 2 "PPV"'s a month

Lucha Underground, NJPW and ROH are far more fun

You need to watch NXT, this week's Last Woman Standing match between Asuka and Nikki Cross was fantastic with some brutal spots

I would imagine they'll book Asuka strongly when she does move up, but that isn'ta guarantee since as you say they don't give the performers the same creative freedom. Whilst she's an experienced worker, I have no idea how you allow yourself to be back-suplexed off the ring onto a pile of chairs without it being anything other than complete agony :shock:

Impact wrestling Slammiversary was great
Just skipped most of the main event as I really dont give a toss about the two guys in it, the rest of it was entertaining

Just watching Slamiversary on Spike at the moment, not watch TNA/Impact for years, felt it totally went down hill, but watching tonight, seems like a bit of the old magic has been rekindled, quite a few old faces from the past popping up too, including the mighty booty daddy, bigg papa pump Scott Steiner, Shark boy, LAX with Konan! Even Don West back on the announcers table.
